Do you fellows feel that you are crushing, or at least deforming your powder pellets with your ramrod? I have gone as far as putting a drill stop on my range rod, and I really think it helps alot. Wasn't the original reason for the pellets "full powder ignition", because of the center hole? Now it seems everyone uses it because of convenience. I think most accuracy problems that people have is due topressure differences. I also believe there is more pressure variance because of the misloading of pellets. What do you guys think? In most of my rifles I have gone back to bulk powders, It makes me feel more consistenet, and I shoot with more accuracy. Tom.
